Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 2nd XI v Dormansland II on Sat 03 May 2014 at 1.30
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won by 2 wickets

Match report On a glorious sunny day, ideal for the start of the cricket season, we won the toss and put Dormansland into bat. Ben & Henry set about their batting line up, with Henry taking a wicket with his first ball! Both bowled extremely well taking wickets at regular intervals and we had DL 64-8! Unfortunately despite taking another wicket we could not manage to bowl out their stubborn final pairing despite numerous outside edges and near misses on the stumps!with Dan Witt and Josh Hill coming on as first changes, bowling really well and unlucky not to notch up a wicket or two themselves Still restricting them to 116-9 off of 47 overs on a good batting wicket was a great achievement. Special mention for Ben Porter who bowled an uninterrupted 18 over spell and bagged 6 wickets at only just over 2 an over!
Josh B & Dom opened the batting and whilst slow going, were on top of the bowling until DJ decided to play across the line to one on the stumps and was promptly bowled! Joycey came to the wicket and in his customary fashion raced into the 20's with 3 4's & 6 before slapping one to mid wicket, which was gratefully caught by the fielder. Josh Boakes then unusually skied one straight up in the air and was also caught in quick succession. Tim, Ben & Henry came and went without troubling the scoreboard! Enter Max Hill & Mr Kevin Murphy ( first game in over a year!) to rescue proceedings, ( after a slight run out scare!) Max batted extremely maturely for his 27 not out, supported and coached through by the experienced KM who was unlucky not to also hold his bat to the end.
A great team effort with some superb individual performances all worthy of MOM's from Ben, Max & Kevin that sees us off to a winning start!
